Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion

1. All planets move in elliptical orbits with the sun at a focus.

2. The radius vector from the sun to the planet sweeps equal area in equal time.

3. The square of the time period of a plant is proportional to the cube of the semimajor axis of the ellipse.

(Chapter: Gravitation)
